DAMIAN LAVERGNE
Position: OT
Class: Sr
School: La. Tech
Conference: WAC
Ht., Wt.: 6'6, 331
40 Time: 5.55
Grade: 3.39

BIO: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection as both a senior and junior.

POSITIVES: Massive blocker who dominates opponents when focused on the task at hand. Can bend his knees, displays lateral range and naturally strong at the point. Jolts defenders with his hands, gets movement from his run blocks or controls opponents in pass protection. Moves relatively well and effective blocking in motion.

NEGATIVES: Over extends and gets tall as the play proceeds. Sloppy with his fundamentals, lacks balance and does not work to finish the play. On the ground a bit too much.

ANALYSIS: Offers a world of ability and potential but must put it to use on an every down basis, improving the finer points of his position if he wants a career in the NFL.

PROJECTION: Early Seventh Round
